About Me

Hello! My name is Brigette and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in East Bay, California. I have 10 years experience working with clients, providing therapeutic counseling services. I have worked with a diverse population of clients ranging from children, teens, adults, and elders. I provide services for individuals and families assisting with issues such as depression, isolation, anxiety, self esteem, trauma, loss, relationship issues, parenting issues, and more. I enjoy working with individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds and I value genuineness and collaboration with my clients. I provide a safe and supportive holding environment that is authentic and nonjudgmental in nature. I tailor my specific approach depending on client situation, needs, and goals for therapy. As well as draw from theories such as CBT, Solution Focused, Family Systems, and Client Centered modalities. Growth and change are encouraged through self reflection and finding practical solutions to problems.
Making a change can feel overwhelming and scary, but if you are ready to take the first step and begin the road to a new way of life, I am here to help uplift and support you! I appreciate your courage and I look froward to hearing from you!

Brigette is an amazing counselor. I’ve had her for about two months or so and she has helped me get through really difficult times that I have been experiencing recently. She really listens to you, is flexible with scheduling, and can provide genuine empathy to help you through your situation. I don’t think I would have been able to have seen my self worth as easily if I were to go through it alone. I highly recommend considering Brigette!

So happy with Brigette. I always feel more confident in myself after our conversations, and she takes the time to work through my problems with me. I really appreciate everything she does, and I can’t imagine being paired with a different counselor!

I have been working with Brigette, she is fantastic. She encourages me, when I am having a bad day/week. She has helped me when I couldn’t help myself.
